Free Printable Ocean Play Doh Mats
This printable ocean play mat can be used in a few different ways.
One way we played with them was with play dough. We simply printed out the coral reef background, laminated it and used play doh to create our own sea creatures.
If you don’t want to use play dough, another cool way to use these mats is to print out the corresponding ocean animals, cut them out and use them to create an ocean animal scene.
These printables would also be great for on the go busy bags!
Any way you use them, they’re a simple and fun way for kids to use their imagination and create over and over again.
